Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good conspiracy! I’ve been into these things since I was a wee lad. I remember my first conspiracy watching a documentary about the JFK shooting and how new evidence had been found showing a cover up as to who actually did the shooting.
Okay, that’s an easy one! It’s out there in plain sight in the media and in our hearts. What about the deeper conspiracies, like Love and Hate? Or the one about evil collaborators taking over the planets food supply to control the masses? What about governments spending fictional money on fictional wars for unknown and unjustified reasons?
The stage for these things was set a long time ago with a few super villains being created. If I would have asked you 200 years ago who the worst super villain of all time was you might have said something like “Oh well that would be Satan, The Devil, Prince of Darkness!” True, and good pick of villains I’m sure the idea of his character
served its purpose over the years back when belief in the mystical was still running strong.
Ever stop to think about who wanted to change all that? Was it truly the awakening of a population? Did we all just stop one day and say “Oh wait, Ghosts and gods aren’t real! We’re not scared of going to Hell anymore! Let’s revolt!” Or was it more like the Vatican divided? Perhaps some held on tight to the old ways of mythological beats as a fear based control structure while the other divide looked to control with their new religion of truth and science? Or maybe there was no divide at all and that it was all a ruse to keep everyone fighting, while the whole time they controlled both teams! Maybe it’s the Vatican vs some other team or group? Or maybe I’m just good at creating conspiracies? See how easy that was?
Who is the current worst super villain of all time? What name rings into your mind? Right, Hitler. Nobody in the history of bad press has gotten as much bad press as Mr.Hitler has over the years. He is a corner stone in the world of evil and all things unjust. Whenever you want to make someone out to be a crook or a criminal you need
only associate them with Hitler or a Nazi. And even today when someone spells “you’re” as “your” all the Grammar-Nazi’s come out of the woodwork! There, that’s it, they’ve already won because I used their own terminology of fear-based control mechanisms of the past in current day situations keeping it alive. That negative association using the word ‘Nazi’ in this context, this spin, is the perfect foundation for all of these new conspiracies and future wars.
It creates a villain of the past. He’s long dead, untouchable, you can’t go back and ‘get him’ in a hole in the ground like Hussein but the hate and evil left behind still rings through to this day, perpetuated by those who want this hate to be a thing, they want it around as way to wag their finger and say “Oh no! Remember what happened to Hitler!”
See, it leaves room for more control tactics in the future. The US government to this day stands proud in their belief that THEY and only THEY are the reason that Hitler was over thrown. Today, when a new so called ‘tyrant’ starts to rise up it’s easy to have whatever president at the time pop on the tv and tell the citizens “Hey we gotta stop this new bad guy, we don’t want another “Hitler” do we?” and then the whole world yells out “Fuck no! Kill him!” and there we have it another fictional war over fictional purposes.
So the old lingering fear/hate of Hitler was used as a way to remind people what ‘could’ happen if they don’t fall into line and shape up! Do what is right for… THIS COUNTRY!
Lines in the dirt… gotta protect your piece of dirt folks!
Okay let’s get to the point of this article! Wow that was a long-ass intro Dr.Cole!
Shaming musicians for being themselves has been a hot new trend in the media. “Look at her! Can you believe what she is wearing? Did you know that was a satanist symbol?! They are doing devil worship right there on stage! Oh my soul let’s all run around and yell and hate on each other and stop anyone from having any fun in this life!”
That kinda thing is what’s happening and the scary part is that it’s coming from smart educated people; conspiracy theorists are brilliant! They can think outside the box better than anyone. They can patch pieces of stories together, they can travel the road of the absolutely absurd and yet, they always keep reverting back to the same villains that were setup before, they always go back to these Hitler and Satan characters, the super villains. Never has the conspiracy theorist stopped for a second to think about why he and his peers are pointing their fingers a certain direction. A TRUE conspiracy theorist would be able to stop and look at how all the paths and roads lead right back to the super villain but would have the nerve to question if that villain was actually a villain or just an easy ‘Go-to-Guy” for the sake of story telling. Maybe Satan is not the bad guy, maybe God is the bad guy! Hitler was into magick and mystical shit, maybe he knew something we don’t about where the world was heading and he was trying to stop it from happening? Maybe everyone who died by the Nazi’s hands were in fact taken over by aliens and had their eggs growing inside of them and they had a way of knowing who had the infection and who didnt…
What I’m getting at is that these theorists need only look at the story so far and from there it’s easy to fill in the blanks with old pre-made characters that are already hated on a global scale and point and wag some fingers.
The latest attack was on Katy Perry and her Dark Horse video and matching stage performance with claims of Satanism. The Devil. This fictional character, this faery tale told to people hundreds of years ago is now making a come back! Are these brilliant theorists really going to, after all this time of selling their science to us, stand there and tell us to hate Katy Perry because of The Devil?
Let’s examine Katy Perry and her Dark Horse business. Exceptional music video, great stage performances, the singing and the music behind it all, meh, it was so-so.
Let’s also look at Lady Gaga’s new G.U.Y. An ArtPop Film video, Great video! Great music behind it too!
Both of these videos are said to be ripe with Illuminati symbolism, angels, heaven, hell, mystical creatures, devil worship, sacrifices and other nasty business from that “Satan” guy, yes the same Super Villain Satan guy people were worried about 200 years ago!
There are scenes in both of these videos where quite frankly, and I know the magic of Hollywood does a lot for their looks, Gaga and Perry are caught in a couple bad angles that slipped through the editing booth! It humanizes them, makes them look like regular people who screw up sometimes. This is where this whole article idea came from as I was watching these music videos for the first time yesterday and it hit me, you can see that they are just humans like you and me. They were Nerds like I was! They let a few bad angles slip through if you ask me, or maybe they wanted us to find them? Fun! Guess what? They each poop and drink water like we do, and they might even smoke cigarettes too! Oh the travesty!
So here we have two regular girls, loners, they are music nerds, which let’s face it makes them nerds through and through. They both would have got on with the dorks vs the jocks of life and that said, is the key to all of this. All of us nerdy folks like the same shit: Space and Fantasy. It doesn’t get much deeper than that. The fact that
space and fantasy has been cloaked in a nerdy dark gloom for so many years is also what attracts artists to that whole scene. We artist-nerds get ridiculed, pushed down, and harassed our entire lives. I got into black magick and Wicca when I was only 17 years old for one reason, the power! I wanted to payback all those dumb jocks who
pushed me around and bullied me! Also the darkness was cool! It was scary, different, it looked neat and nobody else did it, it was my thing. Magick offered a way out! Summon enough power and you will have the ability to do away with those who hurt you, you will have the power to bring about things you like and are interested in. You
will have the power to wave your magic credit card wand and get whatever you desire!
So when I see these loner sci-fi Fantasy nerds making videos with devils and Illuminati, centaurs and angels, and all other forms of Fantasy based material I don’t think it’s wise to get all heated about it and fly off the handle screaming about Devil Worship! Let these artists simply express themselves with the content of their lives. The same people who are pointing their fingers are the same people who locked these kids in closets/lockers/ and ridiculed them for being different, for having talent. Those were the mean bullies who pushed their stack of books and paper down on the floor driving them further into the art room and the music rooms, where they had to hide out!
These videos have been played millions of times and so far no cracks in the earth, no beasts of hell have climbed out to slay us all and no zombie Nazi’s have come back from the grave to spread their hate around. They don’t have to, because we are already doing it by keeping their memory alive. By using terms like “Grammar Nazi” and by getting all worked up over artistic expression. So what if some girl in L.A made a video? So freakin what? You don’t have to watch it, no demons leaked out from the ground, and if you don’t like the music turn it off. None of this stuff is being pushed down anyone’s throats, nobody is out there taping eye lids open and forcing them to watch.
Sure there is brainwashing going on, subliminal messages in these videos, but that sort of stuff doesn’t work the way you think it does. How it works is like this: You watch the lady gaga video and then run out and buy a cheese burger from McDonalds. You might watch the Perry video and have the sudden hunger for Subway. These adverts have been proven time and again to work. The marketers have done tests and studies where they will air a certain video or commercial and then watch the sales numbers to see if they were affected based on the time frame the videos were aired in select areas.
In the end, what we gotta do is learn to love one another and stop finding reasons to hate, and when someone else finds a reason to hate, tell them to shut the fuck up!

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn’t exist.
